Volunteers will guide the flow of foot traffic and help sign in attendees of the fair. Additionally, volunteers will receive an orientation, so they can answer questions. Following the close of the event, volunteers will assist in break down and clean up including breaking down tables and chairs and showing employers and attendees out. There will be light refreshments for volunteers.
The employment fair is a part of the Quality of Life Plan in Englewood, specifically to support the economic growth and vibrancy of the community by answering the concern of low employment in the community. As a larger event with several attendees, volunteers are a crucial part of the success of the day.
